Shortly after arriving in California's gold country in 1848, several members of the Murrieta family were raped and murdered. Told by the local sheriff that it was legal for whites to rape and kill Mexicans, an outraged Joaquin Murrieta went on a three-year killing-robbing rampage. Celebrating the UC Berkeley Ethnic Studies Department's fortieth anniversary, Humberto Garza discusses his book Joaquin Murrieta: A Quest for Justice in 30 Stephens Hall on Thursday, Jan. 29. 6 p.m. 510-642-3947
